Modern hydrogen fuel cell technologies require ever more sophisticated and reliable electronic control systems to assure both safety and longevity. Hydrogen fuel cells are gaining in popularity in critical industries including automotive, aerospace, ocean transportation, military, and power microgrid systems among others.
Skin is the largest organ in the human body. It breathes, it regenerates, and is affected by what’s put on it. As wearable devices continue to grow in popularity the materials used to assemble, and in certain cases affix to the body, need to be taken into consideration.
Ultraviolet (UV) light is a form of electromagnetic energy invisible to humans. UV light falls below visible light on the electromagnetic spectrum, so it does not trigger the natural defenses of the eyes, such as pupil dilation experienced with bright visible light. For this reason, it is important to use personal protective equipment and not to disable any safety controls designed into the UV light source. Many people often mistake the bright light coming off these systems as harmful, but in reality, what they are seeing is harmless visible light.
